How useful would you find risk management support, tailored specifically to what you need right now to succeed in your own organisation?

Please note that since Dr Ruth Murray Webster joined the Risk Practice of KPMG in September 2014, that the programmes are facilitated by Dr Penny Pullan.

We have written this book to provide very practical guidance that can be applied immediately. However, it’s only a short guide and for those who would like more support to facilitate risk management so that people identify, own and manage risks, we have some for you, wherever you are in the world.

This support is for people who have knowledge of risk management processes, tools and practices (as described in Chapter 2), but who struggle to get people in their organisation enthused and committed enough to make risk management work and deliver real value.

STOP PRESS – our previous Open Workshops and 12 month mentoring are now combined in our Virtual Risk Facilitation self paced Programme.

We find that continued support over several months works best for developing risk facilitation skills. So we have our Virtual Risk Facilitation Programme, which ran first in 2012.

Virtual Risk Facilitation Programme for self study

Do you need to run risk workshops and other group meetings or sessions where risk is the topic? If so, this is the programme for you. We cover both face-to-face and virtual techniques and support you as you apply them with confidence in your organisation.

This programme focuses on the practical skills of facilitation, applied to making risk management work well. With modules full of video, audio and reading materials, not to mention the support and challenge of other group participants, you will receive specific guidance and feedback on your own issues. You can time the modules to fit your own risk management process.

What do people say about our Virtual Risk Facilitation Programme?

What went well: the quality of the course, content and virtual facilitation. The sequence is well designed and logical.
Why join the program: if you need to manage risks (for your projects or Company) and you don’t know how to start, or simply want to innovate your approach, then you should follow this course. Brilliantly led by two recognised professionals, you’ll quickly get into practical and common problems, get solutions and learn how to master risks keeping people effective and involved in the process. The quality of the learning material and support is excellent and will complete your experience!

I have enjoyed every minute.

1. Sharing experiences with fellow risk practitioners is priceless. Looking at the soft skills aspects was something I had not considered in the past.

2. To encourage new participants I would say you need to take part fully and actively in the sessions and working through the material. Also try and match the stages of the course with what you are actually doing at work.

Simon, Risk Manager, UK

What do people say about our previous Risk Facilitation Skills training?

Working with Ruth & Penny was a sheer joy, we learnt so big
fundamental answers to questions we had such as ‘how do you actually
put together a risk workshop from start to finish’ to the more subtle
changes such as our use of language and how it can colour a whole
interaction with an individual or group which is such a gem of advice
when facilitating.

We also learnt how to make facilitating a risk workshop fun, enjoyable
AND productive – from scoping the workshop to meeting the objectives.
When putting this learning into practice with the Management Team some
of the comments back included:
‘That was really enjoyable’
‘That was fun’
‘The session was really worthwhile’
‘It’s made us realise how important a stakeholder plan is for managing
the programme….’
‘I’m really impressed with the quality of workshop’
‘I can’t believe how many opportunities there are’

The skills developed and knowledged shared during our session has
really helped spark enthusiasm, energy and real interest in the risk
process – amazing!

Thank you Ruth & Penny.

Our Tailored Virtual Support Programme

We know that some people are really busy and need quick and effective support with specific facilitation and/or risk management problems at a time to suit them. If this is your situation, you can opt to have personal support from Penny by telephone and online. We offer a service where you can schedule and define the agenda for monthly sessions over a period of twelve months.

For each session, you’ll describe the particular context and challenges that you’d like to cover and we’ll prepare to provide advice and tips based on our experience, and then run the session. After each session, we’ll let you have a short summary, highlighting the actions to take and any optional further reading that might be helpful.

This service of course covers the whole spectrum of risk facilitation. The investment for this focused service is £6000 for 12 months (plus VAT where applicable), and includes access to our virtual programme. (A variation of this is available that includes fewer sessions at a slightly reduced cost, contact us to find out more)

To take up this tailored support, please contact us for an initial conversation to ensure that this is right for your organisation. You can contact us by clicking here.

Our bespoke Risk Services

If there are multiple people in your organisation that need support, then it will be much better value for money to organise bespoke services. These could include any combination of:

  • a personalised instance of the virtual programme for your organisation, so you can learn together.
  • a face-to-face learning event that will focus on developing enhanced facilitation skills when adopting best practice risk management.
  • Very specific consultancy to help you fix risk facilitation related challenges quickly and effectively.
  • We would be delighted to talk with you to answer your questions and to explore how best we might support your work in making sure that risk management works well in your organisation. You can contact us by clicking here. Thank you.
